This is the exotic model amongst the knives. Originally designed for preparing Japanese dishes, it has long since become a staple in international kitchens. A Santoku knife is best suited to preparing wok dishes and wafer-thin sushi. It easily cuts and chops meat, fish, vegetables and herbs and was designed solely for downward cutting, i.e. chopping not mincing. Besides being extremely sharp, the Santoku knife is characterised by its special shape: unlike European models, the blade is wider than the handle, allowing for more finger room when cutting. A Santoku knife is also often lighter than its comparably big European counterparts. For those who like to cook a lot, this knife is a valuable addition to any knife set.
The knives in the Grand Gourmet collection are a highlight in any kitchen. Made entirely from stainless steel, they are not only stylish, but also come with a range of exclusive extras: for example, the Cromargan® handles ensure a secure grip and their seamless design guarantees optimum hygiene. When cutting, the bolster provides the necessary balance between handle and blade, giving a whole new meaning to the expression ‘cutting-edge’: high-grade special blade steel is forged in the traditional way along the entire length of the blade and then finished using Performance Cut technology. The Grand Gourmet series includes classics such as an all-purpose knife, a chef’s knife and a bread knife as well as a boning, fillet and Santoku knife. Incidentally, the stainless steel handles are ideal for engraving – allowing you to make each knife unmistakably your own or a highly personalised gift.
